Drawing of the week # 3

Untitled, charcoal on drawing paper, 11" x 14", 2012

The "line of action" was the theme for this drawing. In which direction does the body flow?
I like this drawing a lot. It has a good feel to it. Funny how the quick sketches can sometimes turn out to be such strong work.

Drawing of the week # 2

 Lorenzo, pencil on paper 11" x 14",  2012

Another example of semi-blind contour drawing that I've been doing over the last few weeks. This one is of Lorenzo with headphones and wearing his new reading glasses.

Drawing of the week # 1

So, I've been a slacker yet again with my blogs. To make up for it, I'll try my best to post a drawing every day or every other day depending on my sleep deprivation status.

Here's a blind contour drawing I did of Lorenzo:

Monday class...portrait drawing

So, it's been 2 weeks since I began the spring session at the Visual Arts centre and I'm actually finding it difficult to get into my drawing class. I haven't find my mojo yet with this class and can't even seem to find the time so far to complete any of the homework. I'm hoping that after my yoga class this morning, a quiet Sunday afternoon at home will provide me the push I need to get this class under my belt.
Here are some sketches that I did in the first class.
